Loic Remy’s second half strike saw Chelsea beat a resilient Hull City 3-2 at The KC Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Jose Mourinho’s side started the match in superb form, scoring two goals within eight minutes.

Eden Hazard was first to get himself on the scoresheet when he struck an effort 35 yards from goal which rifled past Hull keeper Allan McGregor.

The second came from Diego Costa, who collected the ball from Cesc Fabrgeas, before curling into the right hand corner.

Hull would not lie down though and accept the scoreline as Andrew Robertson whipped in a superb cross for full-back Ahmed Elmohamady to scramble the ball past Courtois.

Courtois would be called into action once again but it was his mistake that led to Hull’ leveller.

The Belgian stopper attempted to play out from the back, before he lost the ball to Abel Hernandez, who tapped home his fourth Premier League goal of the season.

The second half saw both teams look for a winner, and it eventually came through Loic Remy, who scored for the fourth consecutive game against Steve Bruce’s side.
